Frequently asked questions (FAQ's)

Question: Does this set require lots of prep?

Answer: I created this set so that it would require little prep. The worksheets can be easily printed to use with students, and the games can simply be opened up. The manipulatives do require some prep, but then you will have them for years to come!

Question: Does this bundle require technology?

Answer: Many of the materials in this set can be used without technology. The games can be used with simply a LCD projector and/or interactive white board. There are Easel assessments included as an option; information is included in each set about how to use Easel.

Question: Which programs do I need to open up the files?

Answer: The materials come in a zipped folder. Once you unzip, you'll need the following programs to open:

  • Adobe Reader
  • PowerPoint
  • Google Slides
